We also want to assist in educating the general public and authorities. And bring clarity to the situation regarding adverse health effects being experienced by families in industrial wind energy projects in this province.

A nacelle (generator and gearbox) weighing up to 60 tons atop a 265 ft. metal tower, equipped with 135 ft. blades, is a significant hazard to people, livestock, buildings, and traffic within a radius equal to the height of the structure (400 ft) and beyond.
